Those who hunger for life (Painting the landscape), dummytext performance and video piece 1994.
A performance in fromt of the videocamera (6:24 mins) and a series of photographs. I spit the colours: White, yellow, brown, green, blue, red and black. Each colour influences the way – how I spurt, each color has it’s own bodily expression.
I was trained as a painter for eight years. The work is a reaction and play with that the female would stand for emotions – for the interior, and traditionally men had painted the landscape (overlooking it, viewing it) and the female body. Here the woman spits and spurts boundlessly, uncontrollablly colors, and soil sometimes the camera lens (the gaze) with color.
The video had its first screening at Arnolfini Center, Bristol UK. Then in Sweden at: SMART Show for New Reality Mix Stockholm. ‘Blått snitt’ Moderna Museet Stockholm. Endurance Kulturhuset and The Modern Dance Theatre Stockholm. Gothenburg Filmfestival and ”New Reality Mix” Stockholm.
